I married, Walter LaTorre in 1966, from Cuzco, (born @ Machu Picchu)and settled in California with our 2 sons. We purchased land, buildings and a home for Walter's parents in Cuzco and return to visit frequently, as does our youngest son.

I got a lot out of it: a loving husband and two beautiful sons. My fluency in Spanish has been a real asset in my 32 years as an educator.

Larry Stephenson, Lenny ? and anyone else from the Cuzco area or from our Cornell and Puerto Rico (Camp Radley) trained group.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
My neice returned from PC in Gabon in 2002 and we both highly recommend a PC experience. RPCVs are such a practical, aware group who never again see the world in a narrow way.
